Origin

We started business as a Nishijin textile manufacturer, where Nishijin textile craft workers started up a factory to manufacture textile fabrics. Since 1992, we have been working on the development, manufacture and sale of silver-metalized fiber AGposs®. We started AGposs® with antibacterial products, and received attention that silver has high conductivity through them. AGposs® has been highly valued as conductive fibers ever since. Taking advantage of our experience as the textile manufacture, we keep striving to produce and manufacture fibers to meet customers' needs.
